Okay, there’s a story to this one. I’ve been trying to go back in time lately and find copies of stories that have stuck out in my memory from middle & high school. One of my all time favorite short stories is Borden Deal’s “Antaeus.” Aside from periodicals, it was very difficult to find a paperback collection containing that story. This book is the only one I could find. So I ordered it, and when it arrived in the mail, I was shocked and excited to discover the treasure troves it contained: Night in Funland, The Most Dangerous Game, Flowers for Algernon, all of which I’d read before. I was very happy, therefore, to have hit on several of my old favorites, and now own them in print, in a single collection. My favorite story in the bunch that I’d never read was probably “The Sea Gulls,” by Elias Venezis. This whole collection definitely has a kind of “Twilight Zone” feel to it, almost exactly like Bradbury’s “The October Country” collection.
